Though Sky Sports is on a tier above the rags, rarely reporting things that are completely made up and/or patently false, leave it to them to twist the hell out of some quotes. According to the headline of this Sky Sports article, Mauro Zarate can leave Lazio. Based on the quotes for the article, there is absolutely nothing definitive that the club will let him leave. Thanks, Sky! However, this is a Tottenham Hotspur blog, and our purpose is not to rip on Sky Sports.
The point of this post is to ask you, CFC readers, whether or not you think Mauro Zarate would be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur. The Sky article cites us as one of the teams that would potentially be interested at the right price, and this is not the first time that we've been linked to Zarate.
He is not a true No. 9 and he's almost certainly not going to play as a lone striker. He's not like Bryan Ruiz, where his best position is debatable. And honestly, I feel like Calcio is his game and he will always be at his best in Serie A. For those who have some knowledge about him, what do you think?
